The title of the video is misleading, I think, as I don't think he's actually gotten the position yet. However, as much as I want him to get it, this is not why I'm posting this video.

The reason I'm posting the video begins at 4:57:

Your colleagues on the other side are proposing legislation to redefine the words "journalist" and "publisher," so as to allow them to prosecute people who are journalists or publishers but reveal information that they don't like. Would you oppose such legislation?

Dr. Paul responds with a laugh, "Oh absolutely; doesn't it remind you of 1984 where language becomes vital...."


I tried looking up "John Ensign proposed legislation to redefine words," and could only come up with one link.

I think double posting is silly but every one seems to do it this way


This is morally reprehensible as are so many things the U.S. government does. If a whole load of people were to decide that say..."stealing" now means "borrowing for an indeterminate amount of time," would that fly? I seriously doubt it.
